In the event such amount of the breathalyzer exceeds 0.60 mg/l, the driver becomes subject to a criminal proceeding and will be arrested.

Blood test is only available when you have finnished the alcohol test and you disagree with the result.

Refusal to co-operate is also considered a criminal offence.
